Shame(ful)less self-promotion…

OK, you all know I’m kinda (well, pretty… no: extremely) self-promotion-adverse… and I know this is a bit late (so let the psychoanalysis begin!), but:

Sorry, no news podcast today…

I’m a slacker, I suppose. No “This Week in Shakespeare” podcast this week. Yesterday, the plan had been to fly back to LA from Akron, Ohio via Chicago, IL, with enough time to regroup, relax, rehearse (I’m in a new play, Mister Roberts!), and record that podcast. Well, the travel gods were not with me on that. Flight delayed, schedule rerouted through Charlotte, NC, with not enough time.

But, tomorrow, I’ve got a couple of announcements, and Thursday, I’ll review the Macbeth I saw in Cleveland!

 

And your champion is…

OK, so March is kaput. And so is our March Madness-inspired #BardMadness. First, there were 36, then 16, then 8, then four. Then going into the weekend, we had it down to Romeo and Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing.

And the people have spoken.

And your champion is…

Greetings from Indianapolis!

Real quick note:

Greetings from the Popular Culture Association conference in Indianapolis. Tomorrow, I deliver my Westworld/Shakespeare paper. Today, I get to see some great papers delivered… highlights thus far: “Metaphysical Sherlock,”  “Precarity, Emotional Labor, and Sex Work in HBO’s The Deuce,” and “Black Maeve and White Dolores of HBO’s Westworld: Battered and Abused Heroines’ Journey Toward an Elusive Freedom and the Audiences that Love Them.”

There are over 3000 attendees. I’m exhausted and hungry (thus skipping the Harry Potter session)…
